      Bought this unlocked cell to use abroad. Tested the camera and video before leaving and it worked. Once abroad the fone had talking issues I could hear incoming calls but not outgoing call. I tried everthing to make it work and nothing worked. Worst of all the 15 day returned policy expired while I was there, so I lost my money. I Should have spent a little extra to buy a new but who knew.

      I needed an unlocked phone for foreign travel. This fits the bill perfectly. When I travel I purchase local SIM cards in country and save a lot of money over network provider roaming international fees. This phone has good range is compatible every where we have traveled.

      Got this phone for our 13-year-old and it works great without being terribly expensive. Unlocked, small form-factor, lots of inexpensive cases, but lacks NFC. Screen resolution is perfectly adequate given the size. Also, the screen is relatively cheaply replaced with parts from Alibaba

      I bought this cell for a teenager, to replace same phone I bought, 18 month ago, that just died, still paying the 1st one off. The replacement cell is working excellent, with zero issues, but it`s only been about 6 weeks. Ill update this review if that changes. Cant go wrong for $100

      Phone is in excellent condition, completely functional and working amazingly. Only concern that I have with this purchase is that I didn't got the earphones with item and I received USB data cable and adaptor of non samsung company which is unexpected.

      Honestly we thought the refurb was worth the buy. Then the mic quit working within the return period but we were forced to pay the difference to get a new one instead of being able to just exchange it for another refurb.
